Brush Salon is a study in contrast. Mirrors hang from brick walls and metal fixtures hang like street lamps to give the interior a rustic, welcoming air, but each station is lined with advanced products and staffed by a stylist continually trained to stay abreast of hair trends. This duality matches the salon’s approach to hair services, which combines cutting-edge beauty techniques with an attention to each customer’s comfort and goals. Clients are encouraged to bring pictures or magazine clippings to the salon, allowing stylists to duplicate their favorite celebrity looks or articulate what went wrong with their favorite celebrity marriages. If customers are not pleased with their haircut, color, or retexturing services, they can return within a week and stylists will fix the looks at no charge.
Gilded mirrors punctuate walls the color of honey at Bella Chic Studio. It's this warm, tranquil scene that welcomes guests, who take a seat on the sofa while awaiting treatments. Once in the styling chair, mani-pedi station, or treatment room, the beautification begins: facials, waxing, and haircare gussy up visitors from follicle to stiletto.
Soon to be the subjects of a reality show airing on HDNet, this casual salon’s bikini-clad staff of licensed stylists charms the curls of men, women, and children within warm, beach-themed surroundings. Locks relinquish sand, seashells, and stowaway sea monkeys during a thorough sudsing that preludes the 20-minute haircut, which is tailored to each client’s desires and personal style. As fingers lull pent-up tension from weary noggins, peepers can peruse the colorful interior’s vivid artwork and wall-mounted surfboards, which reflect flickers from the lobby’s sprawling flat-screen TV.
The stylists at Serenity Hair Lounge are big fans of a fashionable contradiction. Inside their appointed workspace, rustic wood floors and muted, faux-marbled walls provide a chic contrast to the polished hairstyles and vibrant hair colors that parade out the door. To really make manes shine though, stylists can tame unruly frizz with a Brazilian blowout that leaves locks smooth, soft, and less likely to attach itself to dryer sheets.
When guests enter Color Bar 51, they’ll invariably hear the buzz of blow-dryers and the snipping of scissors echoing through the shop. At the salon, a team of highly educated stylists bring more than 50 combined years to the cutting floor. Each stylist and colorist is sorted into one of four levels based on their skills and number of years in the industry. In the back, they’d find colorists hand blending ammonia-free glazes and permanent dyes. At individual stations, guests can recline in black chairs while stylists transform their hair with face-framing highlights and keratin smoothing treatments. Guests get a complimentary consultation before any hair services so that the stylist can assess their face shapes and features along with lifestyle habits to determine hairstyles that not only will compliment the guests’ physical appearances but also their active daily lives.
